It’s a Boy!


Good morning everyone!

Thankfully, I feel much better today! After taking some medicine and sleeping most of the day yesterday, I woke up around 4:00 feeling 99% better. Love what a little sleep and super powered Tylenol can do for a gal. ;)

Oh, I didn’t get to show you yesterday, but I finished the cookie order I was working on this week!


These rubber sugar cookie duckies are heading for a baby shower this weekend.  I love making baby shower cookies – they’re so cute!


Obviously, the Mom had a little boy. :)


Hope they like ’em!

Laying around the house all day can certainly make one feel like a loaf, so I got up early this morning to get my started with a bang, and dug into this loaf: EarthGrains Wheat Berry with Honey


The company sent it to me to try so I used it to make Almond Butter & Jelly Toast for breakfast.


Now, both Ben and I just love EarthGrains’ Thin Buns, so I was really excited to try this bread. Like it’s thinner, bunnier cousin – it was just as soft, doughy and delish. Plus it had little wheatberries (the entire wheat kernel minus the hull) studding each slice. Chewy!


This particular bread is made with Eco-Grain wheat, which is found in EarthGrains’ 100% Natural bread line. Eco-Grain wheat is “environmentally friendly” in that it’s grown by farmers who only use fertilizer on the parts of their fields that really need it. This, in turn, helps the environment by reducing the amount of fertilizer being applied to wheat fields. Nice!


Extra nice when it’s slathered in luscious almond butter and raspberry jam. ;)


Well I’m happy to report that the 40 Day/20 Minute Movement Challenge was not broke yesterday. Around 7pm I joined Jillian to shred for 20 minutes. That’s 3 days in a row that we’ve done our dance – time for some good, old fashioned cardio! I had hoped to run outside today, but it’s supposed to be rainy, windy and cold all day. Aka, I’m probably gym bound…

Ooooo I’m also shopping for new running shoes today – so jazzed! You do not want to know how many miles have been put on my current ones. It would traumatize you. 8O

Have a great day everyone!


How often do you get new running/exercise shoes?

    You almost had me fooled YOU were having a little one! I had an inkling it may be your delish cookies, though!

    I am in need of new running sneaks – actually, it always seems that way! The cost keeps me at bay, though:)

  6. I think the duck ones are my fave! So cute! I try to buy new running shoes every 6 months but I’m really bad about actually forking out the money and doing it!

  7. Sara 03.13.2010

    Aww I love those cookies. Can I ask you how do you do the frosting? Is it a special type of frosting, a special tool, or just a lot of skills? Hehe! They are so professional!

  10. Jessica 03.13.2010

    I love getting new running shoes. It always gets me pumped for a run!

  11. BostonRunner 03.13.2010

    Those cookies are so perfect and pretty!!! I get new running shoes probably twice a year now.

  12. You know I have an affinity for those duckie cookies :)

  13. I heard you’re meant to get new running shoes every 6months/500miles…so I’m due for some pretty soon I think! But mine are holding up well, so I’m not sure…
    And :O WOWZER :O how neat are you at icing!!?? Crikey, I wish I had that delicate touch when it comes to icing :P

  14. I’m sure you’ve already posted on this before…but how did you get your cookie business started? And how do you make the icing look so good, and the letter’s so perfect??? Inquiring minds want to know…

  15. Those cookies are too cute!!!! And I second what Ally asked, i’d love to hear all about it!
    Glad you are feeling better! I usually get new running shoes every 6 months or so.

  16. kate 03.13.2010

    those cookies are so adorable!
    where do you go to buy your sneaks in des moines? im definitely in the market for some new sneakers too!

  17. Lo-Jo 03.13.2010

    Those cookies look delicious and cute!

  18. I get new running shoes when my treads become worn and the gel pocket looks smooshed.

    Running shoes are so important. Your joints will thank you!

  19. I have to replace mine every 500 or so miles. My hips and back let me know because I’ve had problems with them in the past. I just budget for it every 6 months.

  20. Laura 03.13.2010

    What is your cookie business? I may need something for an upcoming event. :)

  21. NS 03.13.2010

    Did you know that you can sprinkle chia seeds on top of your almond butter toast and you won’t even notice they’re there?

  22. Jessica 03.13.2010

    I need some new running shoes badly. I’ve always had Nike Shox but I think I might try some new ones. I’ll look into the pegasus!

  23. Kaitlin 03.14.2010

    Those cookies are too adorable! And I don’t even wanna think about how many miles I’ve put on my running shoes…but I can’t part with them, they are too comfy and broken in!!

  24. […] one slice of EarthGrains Honey Wheatberry bread, spread with some butter, garlic powder and parmesan cheese. Popped under the broiler until golden […]

  25. Wow those cookies are AMAZING! How the heck do you get the frosting to look so smooth and shiny?? Not to mention the fact that they are completely adorable!! :-)
